Stabicad 10 Offers Enhancement to Common BIM Software

Stabiplan releases version 10 of its BIM software, Stabicad. But can it help you complete your projects more efficiently?

Stabiplan has released Stabicad 10 with a host of new updates that’ll make MEP engineers lives much easier when working with BIM.

BIM software has evolved rapidly since its arrival in the late ‘80s. With its ability to manage nearly every aspect of a structure’s building plan, BIM has become an indispensable tool for everyone from architects to MEP engineering and construction managers.

Today, BIM systems aren’t just relied upon to generate material lists and installation instructions, they’re also called upon to assess a building’s environmental performance. Determining whether a design meets ever-changing certification requirements and increasingly rigid ISO standards.

With all of these items to manage, MEP engineers need to have the most up-to-date tools to optimize their complex workflows and deliver quality results in a timely manner. With their newest release, Stabiplan has you covered.

Here’s a sample of what’s in the release:

·       Electro tag tool: Saves time when placing tags on electrical symbols in Revit

·       Crunch various duct calculations in Revit with an integrated calculator

·       Autodesk BDS 2016 support enhances performance with multi-core support and settings to toggle processor and memory use

·       Support for ISO 55 for more environmentally friendly tap water system designs

·       Quickly visualize installation concepts for all piping systems in Revit schematic views

In the coming years BIM will continue to be a major player in the worlds of architecture and engineering. With the most up-to-date software, players in those fields will continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible when it comes to the construction time and sustainability of a building.
